Mrs G's daily update
As your parents and carers may have told you I have been poorly since Monday. Mr G is taking on the role of teacher...but i have yet to teach him how to be the best quiz master! I thought I'd write you a quick not today to say that I am missing seeing all your smiley faces and I hope that you are all keeping well. I have had a fab video from Che, which I have uploaded...I'm going to try that at home too. Everyone else...make sure you check before you use up all the washing up liquid!! The Grant family all took the time to clap on our door steps at 8pm last night, did you do the same? It was lovely to see communities come together. We have our rainbows in our window...next we are putting smiley faces up. This could be a job for you this week. Maybe over the weekend, help make dinner and send me a photo of what you have made.
Keep safe and keep smiling
In accordance with the latest government advice, we have had to close the school until further notice. Of course, this is not ideal but with your help, we will endeavour to keep your child’s learning moving forward during this unprecedented situation.
Of course, it is also a priority that we ensure that all children in Year 6 remain prepared for their end of term assessments.
On a weekly basis I will post work for all the children to complete. Please check the page regularly.
In addition, I will add suggestions for activities, projects, websites and videos that we would like your child to access.
If you would like to send me any learning electronically such as a word document, a photo of something you have created or a video you have made, please do so at firstname.lastname@example.org I would really love to see what you have been doing! Also, if you need any help, please let me know.
Frequently, this will involve logging in to the LGFL (London Grid For Learning) suite of websites. You will have recently received a letter with your child’s individual username and password. These login details will remain in place for the duration of your child's time at St Richard's, so please keep them safe and secure. Whenever a website prompts you to login, look for the red 'USO Login' button to enter the username and password.
We understand that each family will be coping with the current situation in different ways, which may affect how much and how often you will be available to support your child with their work. It is still also very important to get some fresh air with your family when you can do so safely. To help you to plan for your day, here is a suggested timetable that you could use. It might help you manage your learning and your family fun.
8.45 - Start of day...why not try 15 minutes of quiet reading.
9.00 - Try Joe Wicks live workout!
9.30 - Have a go at some of the maths activities.
10.15 - Stop for a snack, a break and some fresh air!
10.30 - Now have a go at some of the literacy activities.
11.15 - Have a look at some of the online learning links - try out one of the recommended ones before you choose an activity of your choice.
12.00 - Time for a break and some lunch....maybe you could prepare this for your family.
In the afternoon there are many things that you could do:
You may wish to continue to work on your year 6 learning or revision.
Work on a project of your choice - put together a book or presentation for me to read.
Learn some life skills - can you make dinner? What about make the beds? Maybe you could teach your siblings?
Turn your hand to some art or craft. Maybe try a science experiment.
Can you try a coding program - maybe you could email me something you have created.
Play a game with a family member, learn a new song or have a go at some indoor exercise!
Remember to stay safe, look after each other and make the right learning choices! You have been working so hard and we want to make sure you keep this up! I will keep in touch with you all here and send you messages. I will also share any of your photos or learning you send me.
I will miss you all!
